|cloudburst - katedra - cloudburst|
cloudburst is Tim Westcott from Portland, Oregon. On his first release "katedra", he operates with very minimal, subtle drones and little repetitive elements, shifting into each other. Originally written for a performance in cathedral space, the first two pieces ("katedra jeden", "katedra dwa") are very light, crystal and create a wide open, meditative soundscape. The third piece ("flora") is a more dense production, just taking you back from the big, enormous "katedra"...

|offthesky - rare decay - Jason Corder|
What an enormous output this year by Jason Corder aka offthesky. He has given us two great releases on term and autoplate. Now he returns with a 4-track-EP on Resting Bell. Musically related to the "Du Soleil ep" on atmoworks, "rare decay" presents four careful though stunning pieces. The entire release from beginning to end is a perfect compliment to lying down and watching the clouds lilt by. Or like listlessly gazing on a silent snow fall...
